❏ Your home has humidity problems
Poorly operating or improperly sized equipment could be to blame, there is a misconception about system sizing as many believe that a larger system would cool down the home faster, therefore, save energy. An air conditioning unit that is too large is inefficient because it runs shorter cycles, and shorter cycles cause less efficiency in cost and cooling, and by not successfully removing the moisture of the air creates a humid condition.
❏ Your home has excessive dust
Leaky ductwork can also cause these problems, so having it sealed may be a solution. Monthly maintenance of your heating and cooling equipment’s filters may also help. Duct Cleaning may be needed as it may be too late to change filters now as the dust is within the duct work and as the system continues to cycle it blows the dust within the ducts through the registers into every room in your home.
